Let me start off by saying thank goodness our livelihood is not dependent on me being a food photographer. Or any other type of photographer for that matter. Below are pictures of my first day's worth of meals on this challenge. This is riveting stuff my friends.
Steel cut oats. These were actually quite good with the berries and a little bit of brown sugar and soymilk mixed in. The recipe makes enough to feed an army so invite over your friends!
Lunch. I was doing good until we started opening up all of our kids' lunches at work. Lots of people had ham for Easter dinner. Two of them sent the leftovers to school with their kids. I have never wanted to steal ham from someone as much as I did yesterday. This one kid had the really good honey baked ham and it smelled sooo good. He had like three big slices of it too. I really didn't think he would miss one. Also, I was prepared to wrestle him down for it. Then I remembered that he was three. And then I remembered the Golden Rule. And then I gave him his ham and ate my salad. I was very proud of my little salad. It was yummy, had lots of veggies in it and the canteloupe was good. I was full. For awhile. I had to have a little peanut butter on a spoon when I got home from work to tide me over until dinner.
Dinner was pretty good. Veggie tacos with black beans are something I used to eat a lot of back when I was single in California. They were easy, healthy and super cheap. This time, however, I bought multi-grain tortillas. Not so good. Stick with the flour from now on. The guacamole Mike made was delicious and made up for the tough, chewy tortilla.
All in all I've had a good day and a half with no meat. I don't miss it unless I smell it. And I'm really looking forward to having some of this tonight.
